Express Global Performs a Cross Country Transfer During the National Lockdown in India21. May 2020
Express Global Logistics, a member of the Project Logistics Alliance representing India, completed a time-critical movement of a Waste Heat Recovery Unit (WHRU) module from the western part of India to the east of India.
This module had dimensions of 8.6 x 5.45 x 5.2 meters and weighed 55 metric tons. The journey from the west to the east took 66 days, with a total distance of 3700 km covered. A six-member crew, along with an escort vehicle was deployed to shadow this transfer right from the start-up until its delivery. The height of the unit, for such a long haul, was the biggest challenge along with the accompanying challenge of terrain and distance. Given that the average height of the hoardings and road signs are 5.5 meters, a comprehensive pre-plan for the complete movement was necessary. The total height, including the axles, was 6.4 meters, which made it essential for road signs to be dismantled along the route. The nation-wide lock-down implemented during this period also made the job tougher. However, the EXG crew exhibited persistence in their endeavors. They went on to arrange for all necessary permissions and required resources to ensure no delay in the movement.
Express Global Logistics is proud and overwhelmed by the commitment of the crew and would like to highlight the fact that the team is finally back home and safe. This unparalleled commitment and due diligence have helped the EXG family to face yet another challenging job. Congratulations guys!
